The critical goal of nanobiosensors is to detect any biochemical and/or biophysical signal related to a specific disease at the level of a single or few molecules. Nanobiosensors have been successful for in vitro as well as in vivo detection of several biomolecules. It is expected that this technology will revolutionize point-of-care and personalized diagnostics, and will be extremely applicable for early disease detection. This book includes a brief introduction to biosensors and then describes the emerging nanobiosensor technologies which are geared towards onsite clinical applications and those which can be used as a personalized diagnostic device.

Topics covered include;

  • in vitro detection of cancer and bacterial cells
  • detection of foodborne pathogens
  • generation and optimisation of antibodies for biosensor applications
  • microRNAs and their applications in diagnosis for osteoarthritis
  • detection of circulating tumor cells
  • online heartbeat monitoring
  • analysis of drugs in body fluids
  • sensing of nucleic acids and cancer cells
  • monitoring oxidative stress
